It’s official. China has just overtaken the US as the country with the greatest number of internet users. 253 million chinese are internet users (19% of the population) as against the 220 million in the US (70%). The percentages in the brackets show that the Chinese can only stay at the top as more and more Chinese use the web. This, together with the new domain protocol, seems to be a guarantee that the Web as we know it is not here for long. Or maybe not.
